AngelHair YYS

Angelhair pasta with
1/2 butter
1/2 evoo
2 1/2 cloves of garlic, confetti
10 baby bellas rough chopped
1" rosemary, fine mince
2 tablespoons reserved pasta water
oven roasted grape tomato
squeeze of lemon

This was supposed to be a side - so I only made a scant 1/2 package of
the pasta. My son was not happy about that. He wanted more - as much
more as I could steal from his siblings' plates! It was a complete
accident - we had cauliflower and pork tenderloin for dinner and I
wanted a starch that wasn't rice or potatoes.

yummy yummy Schlurp!
